Wine and Food in The Time of Michelagelo
I have not seen the video but it is common knowledge that he was hanging
with The Medicis in Florence and that he lived in The Casa Buonarotti
there in Florence so let's go Tuscan! The 2018 Dry Red Belial.
Bright ruby. Aromas of ripe red fruit, sage and mint. Supple, but with bright acidity
on the palate with bright red cherries and sweet tobacco emerging nicely.
The finish is persistent and with medium intensity of tannins and fruit.
One of the four crown princes of hell. Roughly translated to ‘without yoke’ in Hebrew.
It is believed that Belial is the purest definition of ‘lawlessness.’
The correlation is that much of what has come to be known as ‘Supertuscans’
or ‘IGT’ is simply lawless. People blending international varietals with indigenous varietals or not following the DOC laws and producing 'renegade wine.'
2018 has 13% ALC.
